I bought this whilst pregnant after reading the dangers of over heating at night time and SIDS. We've had it plugged in since day 1 and it helps us determine what to dress our daughter in for the night.
I love how it also has a night light with it. At the moment the brightness is great as it doesn't distract us as she is still in our room however I feel that this could be a bit brighter for when she goes into her own room.
Bought the gro egg 2 because of the temp light colour changes and good reviews from friends, it’s a good product but I also have the Tommee tippee room and bath thermometer which is portable and cheaper, does the same job, I don’t feel I need varying coloured lights to tell me the temperature of the room to help me choose the best bedding for my baby! It has to be near a plug which doesn’t make it portable, and it’s very expensive! Wouldn’t buy again if I new a single portable thermometer was all I needed
We have one in our room and always have it switched on. Our baby was born in August in the middle of the heatwave we were having so was brilliant as our room is always so hot.
The only thing I dont like about it is the brightness, as baby is still in our room it lights up the whole room when all the lights are off.
The temperature is about 2 degree's lower then actual room temperature.

I bought this thinking that it would be brilliant about determining the room temperature and also the handy nightlight which you and adjust to make it brighter or dimmer. I started to notice that the room was becoming warmer but the Groegg 2 was saying 18 degrees (the ideal temp) but wasn't until I set up the baby monitor I noticed different readings. So I bought another thermometer and that was the same temperature as the baby monitor, some 2 degree's higher. And eversince the Groegg 2 has been installed its given me these readings. It's unsettling to know that the readings are so different. Especially as you're supposed to keep to an ideal temperature and unknowly its in fact a higher room temperature.
This is very easy to use and is quite modern looking. Just plug cable in and switch on and it will give you the temperature. I keep mine in our bedroom as baby is in with us. It's great for by temperature only fault is as it changes colour to tell you if the room is too hot or cold so you know how to dress baby, it lights up the whole room I guess it's good if baby needs a night light to sleep, but personally it really keeps me awake sometimes. Not good when baby is actually sleeping 😅 if it gets caught between the two temp colour changes it just keeps flashing. Apart from that highly recommend.
The groegg is back and is bigger with The Gro Company's 'GroEgg2'
It is larger with a brighter design which makes it even easier than before to check your baby is resting at the right temperature. In addition to our innovative colour changing system and handy temperature display, the groegg 2 has adjustable brightness, meaning it can be used as a nightlight or to find a light level that suits your little one.
